Never a Good Sign

The sound of helicopters hovering over your neighborhood is usually a pretty bad omen. It turns out that a large apartment building a few blocks from us is on fire. We can't see it from here, but there's a lot of black smoke off to the west. A lot of people just lost their homes. I do hope no one was hurt.

Early reports say it is a six-alarm fire and the locals have called in help from several towns.


UPDATE: Three or four residents were treated for smoke inhalation, three firefighters were also treated for minor injuries. About 40 to 50 people lived there.
